Trump warns Iran ‘if you value life don’t threaten us’ as he tells UK abandon nuclear deal

President Trump addressed the ballistic missile attacks on US military bases in Iraq during a speech in Washington. Trump revealed the US suffered no casualties and that "all soldiers are safe" following the incident in Iraq. Iran declared the attacks were in retaliation for the US killing General Qassem Soleimani in an air strike last week.  

President Trump said: "As long as I am President Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon.

"I am pleased to inform you that the American people should be extremely grateful that no Americans were harmed in the attack.

"We suffered no casualties, all soldiers are safe.

"Iran appears to be standing down which is a good thing for all parties concerned."

He continued: "If you value your own life you won’t threaten our people.

"As we continue to evaluate options in response to Iranian aggression the United States will immediately impose additional punishing economic sanctions on the Iranian regime.

"These powerful sanctions will remain until Iran changes its behaviour."

The US President then turned his attention to the Iran nuclear deal.

The US President tweeted following the attack: "All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq.

"Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good!

"We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning."

Mr Trump's decision to authorise the drone strike that killed Mr Soleimani on January 3 has seen tensions between the two nations escalate.
